Aditional Information

About the Hiking

The trail is well maintained, there are a couple of slopes but it's mainly flat. Two bridges, ropes, and handrails will help you and keep you safe. A person in normal shape without any training or hiking experience can do it. It's not recommended to take the hike for people with recent surgeries, knees or health problems, or for sensitive seniors. Fortunately, there is the No Hike tour version.

No Hike tour version

Our customers will enjoy a Costa Rican coffee at the tranquil Ranch House, instead of the hike to the Ebano Waterfalls, but they still have the chance to visit the Jade Waterfall, which is very close to the Safari Truck road, we are very lucky of enjoying this feature.
